I was born in 1960 in Cardiff, South Wales where I still reside. I’m happily married with six kids and 18 grand children. I worked as a warehouse operative for 3 years after leaving school. In 1979 I got my first driving job delivering Ice Cream to retail businesses around the UK. I enjoyed a career as a driver for 30 years during which time I had many job descriptions from Motorcycle Dispatch Rider to Articulated HGV Class 1 driver.
I smoked for 40 years, tried and failed to quit several times over the years until 1st Nov 2013 when I tried my first e-cig. Since that date I have not smoked a cigarette or even thought of smoking one.
My Hopes and Fears...!!!!???
Regulation is needed to safe guard both children and adults from unscrupulous companies willing to sell to people under the age of 18 and from companies selling sub standard products. The regulations being proposed will do the above but they will also prevent current smokers the opportunity of using an e-cig as an viable alternative to smoking.
I have joined the VIP team because I feel so passionate about this and I hope we can bring about change by educating people about the benefits of e-cigarettes.
